AC Milan are accelerating for Yunus Musah and want to get the deal done before the end of the week, according to a report.
According to Calciomercato.com, Milan have set the clear aim of closing the deal for Musah by Friday, the day of the team’s departure for the tour in the United States.
Contacts began early today with Valencia, and CEO Giorgio Furlani is working with the Spanish club to try agree things. Milan are in pole position to land the USA international, with Fulham currently behind.
The owner of Valencia decided to raise the asking price when Milan were entering the final straight in previous Musah talks after an offer of €13m plus €4m in bonuses. Furlani will increase the bid to €19-20m including bonuses, and he is confident.
The same source reports that the 4-2-3-1 system will be set aside to make room for the 4-3-3. While there are minimal differences, it seems Milan will no longer play with a natural attacking midfielder and will thus seek more balance.
A midfield trio of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Tijjani Reijnders and Musah could therefore be what the Rossoneri start next season with.
